Jade Empire - Special Edition CES Preview @ GameSpot

by Dhruin, 2007-01-10 12:17:50

GameSpot has some CES 07 impressions of Jade Empire Special Edition.  It seems the control scheme that was once said to be impossible on the PC is actually quite simple:

Controlling your character is easy--you use the standard W, S, A, D keys to move and most of your attacks are controlled with the left and right buttons on the mouse. Multiple clicks of the left button will result in longer and more complicated chain attacks but those can be blocked by enemies. Clicking the right button will result in a longer, more powerful attack that will break through a blocking enemy's defenses. Pressing the left and right buttons simultaneously resulted in an area attack that was ideal for making some room when the enemies piled up. In addition, as a magical martial artist in Jade Empire SE, you'll be able to focus your chi to add extra damage to your attacks (by pressing the E key) or heal yourself by holding down the left button on your mouse at any time.
